1 000 000 de visites … et un petit test

UN GROS MERCI À TOUS CEUX QUI VISITENT ET CONSULTENT CE BLOG RÉGULIÈREMENT !!!

Ce n’est que symbolique pour moi car ce blog ne me rapporte rien $$$ mais il faut quand même souligner les plus de 1 000 000 d’articles/pages visitées ici!

Ce blog existe depuis octobre 2010, comme vous le voyez sur les statistiques ci-haut, et je vous confirme que j’ai vraiment commencer à m’en occuper sérieusement il y a environ 5 ans (l’article le plus vieux encore sur ce blog est du 25 avril 2012).

Suite à un commentaire récent, j’ai constaté que l’article avec le plus de « j’aime » en avait 21. Considérant les 677 abonnés, j’ai pensé que c’était peu (même si je ne cherche pas vraiment ça) et je sais qu’en ne publiant pas mes images, si les lecteurs veulent vraiment mettre un « j’aime », ils le feront pour le photographe (en suivant le lien à la fin de l’article) et non pour le « journaliste » qui lui fait de la publicité gratuite!

Alors, pour le petit test, je serais curieux de voir combien de « j’aime » cet article peut accumuler étant donné que ce sont mes mots et mes photos à 100% !

Encore merci à tous et je souhaite vous en faire découvrir encore plus de notre belle planète, sa nature et ses habitants.

Comme j’ai l’habitude de mettre un lien à la fin de l’article, en voici Un Vaillant Martien

A decade of award-winning British landscape photography

A new book brings together the UK’s greatest landscape photographers, who have captured everything from violent seas to tranquil mountains.

Featuring more than 250 beautiful images from a hugely popular series that has sold more than 100,000 copies, this celebratory special edition will grace any coffee table. Supported by VisitBritain and Network Rail, the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition was launched Charlie Waite, one of today’s best-known landscape photographers, in 2006. The Special Edition looks back at the panels of respected judges, all big names in the photography field, that have helped him to choose winners of the sought after accolade ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year’ over the last decade.

Printed on sumptuous art paper, this special edition features everything the British landscape is renowned for – classic shots of rural countryside, rugged lochs, mountains and moorland and stark industrial scenes capturing the beauty and diversity of Britain in the 21st century. Landscape Photographer of the Year: 10 Year Special Edition is a glorious celebration of a much-loved competition and an object of desire for everyone with an interest in photography as well as those who love the British countryside.

Gardens At Night

This was a winner for me early on in the submission stage. Magical reflections, image full of interest, the colours are glorious, I’m glad the photographer didn’t enhance them I really like the pastel tone to the whole image. The bridge perfectly set in the composition. It’s not crystal sharp but that gives it an ethereal feel. Even the shard of light on the left adds to the image. Well done seriously jealous to have been there let alone take the picture……..

There were a few entries of these Super Trees but this one took it with its sharpness, composition and sheer amount within the image…… This is a perfect advert for one of the worlds greatest attractions. The detail is gorgeous and I really like the close framing at the edges, great positioning of trunks and inclusion of whole circle walkway. Thank you for including it in my contest, very jealous.

Very nice inclusion to the contest, a supreme example of how b/w makes an image. The subtle tone makes it stand out and the lighting caught my eye instantly. Nice composition of the whole photo vanishing of to the left and the dark light split on the right side, the hazy blur and the heavy visible trunks, magical.
